He rang Molott to turn his paddle up for the contact with Jamison's boat. He was sure in his mind Jamison was lying, that his hull dam- ana had already been repaired, and the Claramore could be withdrawn from the gravel bar on her own power. He said to Goss tightly, "Get below and see that our Coco- pahs are ready. If you find Qncrnie, hotter tell her to come topside. You can expect trouble ns soon as you lie fast to the Cl.'iramorc." Goss reached after the rifle t?i;it wits sheathed beside the wheel, and plunged down the ladder toward the lower decks. He know as well as Crotch the outright piracy of which Jamison had many times been guilty. Below, on his own deck, he noted his c^pw arming themselves with timber from the wood bunkers—stout pieces from the San Diego's hog-framing, railing lengths and hardwood hand- mils his nxmcn had cut last night from the beached Navigation packet. Mo saw with a Hurry of relief that Queenio was leaving her diiartcrs, and then he spied Sugar Logan coming forward to meet her. Logan would be bringing her to the safer cabin deck. Th'e safety valve began shrick- Inf*. He had brought the Gen- rrnl Heath within a few foet of .Jamison's ship, and now Goss henvcd a line which was caught on the opposite boat nnd made fa si. Jamison's, men were lifting a gangplank over the roll. II had hardly been secured in pl.'ice before they came chnrging n cross. They flourished lengths of flre- v'fvl in ihrir brawny hands. , StoMfc»4 PrtffeMfMi, IK Jamison's crew had gained nearly the engine pit when Goss struck them anew with a four- foot section of hogging frame He was going into them with his cleaving timber, leaving a circle of fallen crewmen around him. Into this rushed a few of the Heath's remaining deckhands. China Boy came in for support by striking with the blunt edge of a meat cleaver. Melott was rushing from his engine pit, shoulder to shoulder with two bare-chested Cocopahs. These three carried pokers which had been healed to cherry heat in their fire boxes, * * * BUT all this , had become a background. Crotch had suddenly picked out Jamison crossing his deck. Jamison rushed upon him as he reached the lower deck. Jamison carried a club. He got an arm up fast, caught Its down- made him Jamison's club in swing. The blow wince in agony but the sudden stoppage of the piece wrenched the weapon from Jamison's grasp. Now Crotch stepped in with leather-hard fists cracking. He struck Jamison on the jaw, caught the snap of the other man's teeth under the impact — the sensation carrying ail the way through his arm. Jamison was groaning, blood running steadily from on* corner of his mouth and staining his coat front and his shirt. Crotch's knuckles were bare, his own sweat and blood smarting his eyes. Jamison was hitting bnck, yet Crotch barely felt the reeling effect of his punches. Now Jamison lifted a knee to •ils groin. His air left him In a ong groan M his Kings emptied. 3ut he had a second chance nt Tn norm's jaw before thn full :its Mi. 'n-i fj.'lh bat- J him. lie *aw Jamison's ncad J rock back. From that moment Jamison's eyes turned bleary. Jamison was nearly out on his feet. He saw Jamison totter weakly against the railing, holding to it one-handed. Too late he realized the utter ruthlessncss, the complete cunning of the man. Jamison's free hand streaked upward, paused behind his neck. It came outward and down, carrying the glitter of a knife. Cratch felt the cold blade pierce the skin of his arm, pinning,his jacket tight to the boat's framework. But there would be no reprieve for Jamison. He had slipped in throwing the knife, he was clutching weakly at the railing. As Crotch stared wide-eyed, Jamison went overboard. Crotch stood with his legs firmly braced to the heaving deck, watching the river.. He stood for several moments before dimly making out the dark outlines of a body. There was no life remaining in the floating corpse . . . Jamison was dead. * * * HE was vngucly aware of his crew throwing the Clarnmoro's men onto their own deck. He heard Melott's sharp yell: "Get rid of that gangplank! Cut the line!-' Thon Goss' thick answer: "Let their crew get their own passengers to shore. Or let them swim!" He became conscious of someone beside him, finally her soft fingers touching his arm. "You have always fought your battle alone. You always will—you do not need anyone. You don't need me." He had released his jacket from the knife and was wiping the blood that trickled from a corner of his lips, his handkerchief showing the stain of a bad cut. "Need you?" be murmured softly, "I need you more than ever." His arm hnd come around her ck and now she drew nearcY, "A woman does enjoy being courted for a little while," she said. Her eyes picked up a happy twinkle. "Captain, it will be so wonderful being courted by "on!" (THE END) BEST SHOE REPAIR IN TOWN HALTER'S QUALITY SHOE SHOP 121 W. Main W. M.
